I think I'm a glutton for punishment these days. First the film noir challenge, and now this. Who wants good scores anyhow? :)

I'm guessing this photo will do well with a certain subset of people, and really tank with everyone else. I myself only sort of like it (it does grow on me as I look at it, so I'm hoping for some patient voters this time). Hopefully I get some interesting comments out of it.

I like the composure. It hints at whats in the background but doesn't let you really see beyond the barrier.
